At My Venues

Tasting menu
$$$$, Modern, American, Telegraph Hill
"I love the delicate preparation of seasonal ingredients in the dishes served here—they're highlighted without being over-manipulated. The peeled cherry tomatoes dressed in a tomato water vinaigrette and served with a grilled zucchini and wheatgrass puree was a particular summertime favorite of mine."
Candied raspberries
$$$$, Modern, American, Telegraph Hill
"After having a pretty mind-blowing meal at Coi, it's hard to imagine that little sparkly raspberries could be the thing that knocks you dead. They are apparently an all-day project for the chefs at Coi. Starting in the morning, egg whites are applied with a little paintbrush, the berry is rolled in sugar, and then it's set out to dry. This is repeated over and over and over again until dinner service starts."
Beet rose
$$$$, Modern, American, Telegraph Hill
"A beet is sliced and arranged to look like a rose sitting on top of a granita made out of rose. The whole thing is delicious, but you do a double take. Simple yet brilliant."
